Something Different to the Usual

Good Afternoon All, Im so sorry Ive not been a very good blogger this week, but Ive been in quite a bit of pain from a bowel infection that its put me of crafting a bit, I have been good and have made several DT cards but only a couple of the usual ones for blogging so I thought for a change Id bring you some completely different.
These two parchment picture frames were made about 4 years ago so theyve been hanging on my craft room wall and I just thought for a change I would share them with you, now I know the mount on the bottom one isnt right but it was my first attempt that I managed to finish of completely after several doggy starts it was labour of love believe me, so to actually manage to create it in the first place was an achievement, after that I went on and made the top one which was a much better result altogether.
The two pictures are actually ones that I traced the flower outlines from one of Christine Colemans patterns and coloured them myself with prisma pencils and if you click on the picture you might get a better look at them, but its awhile since I have done any of that so I think perhaps sometime in the future I might just give it another go.
Hope you like the results, and I will try to get back to my normal blogging but please do bear with me.
